Water Well & Pump Maintenance
For over 40 years, CTW has dedicated countless hours to helping municipalities, homeowners and business owners with water well maintenance. Whether you own a residential or commercial property, managing your well is a critical step to ensuring you have access to clean water.
Commercial, Municipal & Agricultural Well Maintenance
CTW proudly services commercial businesses, municipalities and the agricultural community and help them to develop comprehensive well maintenance programs.
Our engineered programs are specifically designed to treat three predominate causes of well and pump failure.
A major cause for loss of well production and premature degradation of piping and equipment is the presence of biofilm. Biofouling creates a “thick” discontinuous irregular layer of slime and biofilm along the wellbore, well screen, piping/equipment, bedrock fractures, gravel pack, and within the aquifer. These films consist of a combination of amorphous polymeric chains containing metal oxides of iron, manganese, aluminum and other trace metals; biofilms may also house or protect pathogenic bacteria, viruses, and protozoan.
Biolfim reduces the efficiency of the well by plugging screens and intake of the pump. Accelerated chemical and electrochemical corrosion can result in increased metal content, aesthetic and taste problems, and failure of pumps and piping due to corrosion. It is imperative to properly diagnose and treat microbial related well issues. CTW utilizes a specific analytic laboratory to speciate bacteria and confirm your water quality. Our engineers will provide a comprehensive solution to treat your well and provide additional maintenance expertise to keep biofilm at bay.
Whether it is calcium, manganese or iron; mineral deposition can hinder your well capacity and distribution system. CTW provides detailed televising services to diagnose the extent of the condition and will provide the perfect blend of chemical, mechanical and air impulse gun technology to rehabilitate your well to achieve maximum capacity and efficiency.
Loss of Well Capacity
As a system operator, you are responsible for maintaining a complex water distribution system for your neighbors and community. While routine well and pump maintenance will catch most issues before they become large ones, monitoring your system for subtle changes in pressure or volume is crucial. Do you see a loss in pressure or volume? Call us to discuss how we can quickly diagnose the cause and provide you with a prompt and cost effective solution.
Residential Well Maintenance
Your home is your castle. Making sure that you have a safe water source for you and your family is essential to everyone’s health. One of the best forms of action is prevention, and CTW Corporation’s experts have compiled a list of things you can do to keep up with your residential water well.
Properly Store Chemicals
You may use fertilizer and pesticides to keep your grass green and your gardens growing. However, these products contain harmful ingredients that can contaminate your water. Always store your chemicals in a shed or storage building away from your well. This will prevent cross-contamination in the event of a spill, ripped packaging, or leak.
Know Where You Keep Your Well Record
Your water well records contain vital information about your well such as its age and the last time you had it serviced. Store this information in a safe place, and read these records periodically to help you keep track of what services need to be conducted.
Watch Where You Mow
Mowing or weed whacking around your well prevents debris or unwanted guests from disrupting its function. However, it’s essential that you pay very close attention to what you’re doing. You don’t want to damage the well casing or cap allowing insects to enter the well. When you’re finished, be sure to rake up any grass clippings or leaves that may linger around the well and provide a home for unwanted guests.
Inspect Your Well
From inclement weather to overgrown shrubs, your water well can end up damaged by a variety of sources. As a general rule of thumb, inspect your well once a month. Look for cracks in the well cap, leaks, litter, or damage to the well casing. Doing a quick once-over can prevent you from spending thousands of dollars on repairs and replacements at a later date.
